Where do birds go when it rains?

Asked by Kyla Lamb

Their feathers shed rain and trap air against their bodies to help keep them warm. But heavy rains prompt them to seek shelter in bushes and trees. They remain motionless and conserve energy much as they do at night. Prolonged rain means the birds will run an energy deficit.
